A  Dining Experience

We pride ourselves on offering culinary delicacies, experiences and treats.

Durn House has a reputation for ‘Fabulous Food’, and has been rated as one of the best places to eat in Portsoy, Banffshire and Aberdeenshire. We have our own kitchen garden supplying herbs and other produce which regularly appear on our menus.


Our Menus are designed and prepared by our Head Chef and his team, in house, using the freshest local ingredients from the best suppliers in Aberdeenshire.

There is no better start to the day than enjoying breakfast at Durn House but we have decided to take the experience one step further and now all guests can enjoy the Durn House Breakfast in the privacy of their own room.

With a cooked breakfast menu including classic cooked favourites, plus our popular home-made granola, chefs dropped scones with compote plus jam, marmalade and fresh baked muffins, your most important meal of the day is also likely to be the most delicious one.

Breakfast can be enjoyed by all resident guests, and non resident guests, by prior arrangement.

Afternoon Tea

Our Afternoon Tea is the perfect combination of sweet and savoury, and although perhaps a little naughty, it’s worth every delicious bite.

Organic, Seasonal and Sustainable are words heard a lot lately yet that is what we have here at Durn House with our own small but developing herb, fruit,  and vegetable garden.

Our 'secret' kitchen garden is tucked away behind the granite and stone walls of Durn House where we have raised beds and borders including herbs, fruits, vegetables and salads ready to adorn our guests plates.

Our head chef Paul is in charge of proceedings and is looking to expand the range of produce over time.
